I am using my Vera Lane Joyful set this week for our challenge: a color/photo inspiration. I love the colors here, don't you?
I printed my images on X-Press It BC, and colored them with my Copics and Twin Touch Brush markers:
Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, E04, R20
Hair: E41, E43, E47
Dress/Stockings/Birds: TTYR26, TTY36, YR21, BG02, BG05, BG07
I didn't incorporate any DP in this design, just Stampin' Up CS. And my Joyful sentiment was edged with SU ink. Wow, talk about CAS for me, huh? Not even one die cut. Will wonders never cease.
Our Cardinals barely squeaked out another win last week against the Giants. I have to say, it is getting almost embarrassing to be an NFL fan, with all the ugly stuff that has come out in the last couple of weeks. Good grief, Charlie Brown. And one player is even on our roster, darn it all anyway. Had hoped we would have better-behaved players than that. Heavy sigh...
Nonetheless, I am excited to go to the game on Sunday. Hopefully, it will be well-played, with the Cardinals being victorious. Have you got any fun plans for the weekend?
We are getting our bids in for the pool. And Gary is having a splendid time going through them with a fine-tooth comb. It appears we were a little too optimistic about some of the design features. Will have to cut some to meet our budget. Not like our last pool, which was pretty sophisticated in its time. But, what I really want is a pretty pool with plenty of room to swim in. And some nice patio surfaces with lots of room for chairs. I'll have to take before and after photos. (Perhaps even some during construction, which I am looking forward to like a dental visit. Messy it will be. And noisy. My two least favorite conditions. Oh well....)
Do stop by the challenge to check out the fab designs by my talented teammates: Carla, Dawn, Kathi, and Laine! And then color something up using our color/photo inspiration and play along with us. Remember, you can use any coloring medium!
Have a wonderful weekend!
